From: Easy Going Scans:

Fate brings two people who live in the same condo together on a typical afternoon. Ozawa (26) has just broken up with her boyfriend of five years and was in the process of trying to rebuild her life when she meets Oyamada who lives a couple floors below her. He is somewhat of a loner although he does have a few friends and his room is cluttered with all the random stuff that his impulse shopper brother sends him. Ozawa takes an interest with all the things in his room and the two start a friendship that slowly turns into something more.

Basically the perfect romance if you just want to enjoy the read and not have to think or follow all the details. After tons of stories with arranged marriages, random bullies everywhere, and the chick/dude always thinking the other is cheating, I find this to be a VERY refreshing change.... I really hope nothing dramatic happens in it... at most maybe the ex trys to pick her up(and is rejected rather quickly)... its the only amount of drama I can see that wouldn't ruin the feeling the story has had so far. 10/10 and if it doesn't destroy itself, it'll probably be in my favorite romances. great read.

And by "rather quickly" I mean ex only gets his face 1 chapter and then goes poof leaving them to their comedic sweetness smile

Hey those of you who seek romance but right now are turned off by the cover of a man who looks like a homeless nerd. Don't be fooled by it. You get used to his appearance in 2 chapters. The story is absolutely awesome, no drama, comedy here or there, ordinary life, no 2000000 pointless chapters on thinking about confessing and stuff. Really guys try this. You won't be disappointed.

Certainly one of the cutest mangas I have read so far, and not only that, but it is refreshing and the drama is toned down and tamed. This manga is basically just about a quirky couple in love. biggrin but ADORABLE ADORABLE AND ADORABLEEE
Highly recommended ;P

Just great! Give it a try if you haven't already. It's about a baka couple without any stupid drama.
I laughed so much, they are lovely.
A perfect example of a couple of best friends who want to share their lives because they love being with each other, they love and respect each other and they have fun when they are together, even when they are just lazing around.

I adore this manga. It's a simple, sweet romance with an episodic style. The series revolves mainly around the main couple, with two side characters included in the cast. I loved how the story was drama-free, and so pure! Always left me with a smile after each chapter. It also had it's hilarious moments. Pacing was good as well. It didn't feel rushed at all, although I was a bit sad when it ended! I feel like there could be a sequel bigrazz.

This manga is really pure, not innocent, but pure. Its sooo adorable and just goes with the flow. I love all the characters and their weirdness (especially the fact that we don't really know what the brother looks like. Lol.) Can't wait to finish it.

I'm totally loving Oyamada!!!
He is such a kind, understanding and lovable boyfriend.
I love how he genuinely treasures Ozawa.
My favorite lines from Oyamada that made my heart skip a beat are

Ozawa: I have this feeling things will change if we get married...
I know it sounds stupid. We're at the right age, after all.

Oyamada: "If we get married, well I guess something will change."

Ozawa: Ah. Right.

Oyamada: "Your surname" >.<

Oyamada :" I don't intend to ever leave you so... well, I don't anything will change between us if we get married someday"

I postponed reading this for a long time because I read the 'career woman' tag. Well I am glad I did that so I could swoop all 13 chapters in one time. BUT IT"S STILL NOT ENOUGH!
This series is amazing... the characters are cute, they radiate warm feelings all over me (lol)
and what's more there's no ecchi, proving that even a straight healthy young man like me can enjoy a series without sex jokes.
anyway I don't want to halt you too long, just hit this Manga already
I give it a 8.5

this is one of the best drama free relationship manga ever. everything is so airy and light, im giggling throughout the chapters. there's nothing to it except sweet interactions, and great for anyone who want o unwind after a stressful day.

As other comment says, this is pretty nice manga with realistic and mature characters with also nice pace.

I'm worried about the future though, you could only do so much until you have to went the path of stupid over dramatized misunderstanding or some sort. Hope this would not gone that path, I'd rather have nice short manga than long train wreck.

For now, it's good.
